the cradock four
The story of Matthew Goniwe, Sparrow Mkhonto, Fort Calata and Sicelo Mhlauli is relived in The Cradock Four.

Winner of Best Documentary at the 2010 Durban International Film Festival, The Cradock Four will hit the silver screen in Johannesburg at The Bioscope during the month of January 2011.

The documentary by David Forbes recounts the events that took place on the winter night of 27 June 1985, when apartheid's security forces abducted four activists on a lonely mountain pass and brutally murdered them. Matthew Goniwe and his three comrades would become known as The Cradock Four in one of apartheid’s murkiest and most controversial assassinations.

The Cradock Four explores who the four were and the circumstances that led to their death. Screenings have been scheduled for the following dates. All screenings start at 8pm.

  • Friday 21 January 8pm opening night
